Benvenuti/Welcome to the Galbani Cheese Italian Heritage and Food Festival of Buffalo, the nation’s second largest Italian street festival. This year we celebrate our 26th anniversary on Hertel Avenue, in North Buffalo’s Little Italy. Our festa will include local entertainment, bocce, Italian Idol contest, cultural demonstrations, crafts, kids activities, Miss Italian Festival, grape stomping contests and Sicilian puppet shows to name just a few of the special events!
Our love for God, family and Italian culture are at the very heart of every Italian. Whether you are Italian or not, we welcome you to embrace our heritage and eat, drink, sing, dance and enjoy all the best we have to offer.

Grazie e Viva L’Italia!!

Carmen Palma
